The project is designed to provide a cultural space in downtown areas where citizens can take a rest by finding a new uses for multi-functional space inside the Craft exhibition hall parking space in Jeonju Hanok Village.
“Empty and filled”
A space that is full even though something is lay out or not
“One room for me, one room for moon and one room for fresh moon.
There is no room for the mountain and river so I will surround them around me.”
“Spring” that goes well with the environment inside and outside of Hanok, “Rest” that can get back the relaxation in daily, “Enjoying” the tradition and culture of Hanok. With these three keywords as a background, we constructed a space that provides a clean margin and that goes well with anything to experience Korean culture.
If you look around Korean traditional houses, you can see that Korean paper has been utilized in many factors, such as floors, walls, and windows. Even in the newly created space, the company wanted to continue its value by adding a modern sense of hanji to floor walls and ceiling structures.
In the traditional floor space of hanok, the most important thing is to take off your shoes to experience Korean sedentary culture and Hanok. For that experience we raised the floor with floor paper made of Hanji. In order to sit, it requires a traditional soft quilted cushion of warm material. And a temporary wall on the each side, which is made to see the outside on a clear background, and the ㄷ shaped structure, which comes down from the roof to emphasize the composition of the space, was also finished with Hanji, which conveys the sense of Korea’s original materials. At a clean and comfortable background, it becomes a space of margin of Spring and rest.
From the horizontal and vertical sense that you can find from the doors and windows of Hanok, we prepared a book house for ‘Nurim’ (to enjoy). Inside the squared space ratio, it forms a space that traditional and modern sense co exists by a shelf with modern expression of traditional beauty and a thick hardwood tree table.
